The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server functioning in case there are problems with the primary power source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is attached to the server and to the electric power network all of the time, so in the event of any interruption, it is already functioning, which enables the hosting server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we offer cloud web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your websites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of several clusters handling your content. Each hosting server in the selected cluster features its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole data center to stay operating for several hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there is an outage, as our backup units can power all of the devices and we shall not have to limit the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electricity for the entire center for many hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is a blackout, all of the websites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any interruptions and will perform at top speed.
